Dublin’s 10 Day ‘Science in the City Festival’ launched yesterday to celebrate Dublin hosting Europe’s largest science event – the Euroscience Open Forum 2012.
The Festival will host a range of events for all and will showcase the joy of discovery, and wonder of science.
The innovative programme of science themed events across Dublin consists of photographic and art exhibitions, several theatre pieces, film festivals, tours, trails and treasure hunts, science buskers, large-scale interactive installations, experiments, public talks, debates and workshops.
The festival will take place between 6th – 15th July.
‘Science in the City’ unites a community of cultural institutions, organisations and individuals who have come together to showcase the best of science, arts and culture in Ireland.
The Science in the City Festival is an integral part of the Euroscience Open Forum 2012, Europe’s largest general science conference. This important gathering will provide a platform for debate, for influencing policy and strengthening the links between science and society.
